- Charlie Sheen appeared to blame his ex Denise Richards for their daughter Sami joining OnlyFans.

- Sami announced on Monday that she was joining OnlyFans in a post on Instagram.
Denise Richards reacted to her 18-year-old daughter Sam “Sami” Sheen joining the adult content subscription platform OnlyFans after her ex Charlie Sheen appeared to blame her for Sami’s decision to join the platform.
On Monday, Sami announced her OnlyFans account with an Instagram photo of herself wearing a black bikini in a swimming pool. “Click the link in my bio if u wanna see more,” she captioned the photo, directing followers to a link to her OnlyFans page. Sami’s OnlyFans bio indicates that she’ll upload new content “2-3 times a week” and encourages subscribers to contact her via direct message.
In a statement shared with Insider via his publicist, Sheen made clear he disapproves of his daughter’s new venture. “I do not condone this, but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative, and not sacrifice her integrity,” he said in his statement.
Sheen also appeared to place blame on his ex-wife Richards for Sami joining the platform. “She is 18 years old now and living with her mother. This did not occur under my roof,” Sheen’s statement also said.
Richards responded with her own statement to outlets including E! News and People. “Sami is 18, and this decision wasn’t based on whose house she lives in,” the reality star said. “All I can do as a parent is guide her and trust her judgment, but she makes her own choices.”
Richards also supported Sami in the Instagram comments section of Sami’s OnlyFans announcement post, writing, “Sami I will always support you & always have your back. I love you ❤️”
Richards didn’t respond to Insider’s immediately request for additional comment.
Sheen and Richards, who married in 2002 and filed for divorce in 2005, share Sami and another daughter, 17-year-old Lola Rose Sheen.
Sami has previously voiced her issues with her parents publicly, saying in September 2021 that she had “escaped” an “abusive” household and moved out of a “hell house.” She didn’t specify whether she was living with Sheen or Richards at the time, though a source told People that Sami was living with Richards.
In February 2022, Richards said on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live that she had a “strained” relationship with Sami, who was living with Sheen at that time. “It’s very difficult. I know we’ll get back to where we were eventually but right now, it is strained,” she admitted.
Richards, who rocketed to fame as a sexy teenage heiress in the 1998 movie “Wild Thing,” presenting herself as both sexually open and sexually conservative on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” She confirmed that Sheen once brought a “hooker” to a Thanksgiving dinner in season nine episode fifteen, “One Wedding and a Polygraph.”
“Even a hooker deserves to have Thanksgiving dinner,” she joked in a confessional.
But on one occasion, she criticized her fellow cast members for discussing threesomes with a group of minors nearby, on season ten episode six. “A lot of people have an impression of me being wild and crazy, but Charlie was sober when we got married, so we were not this swinging couple that people might assume. We weren’t,” she said in a confessional.
